We visited here two days ago for lunch. A bit hard to find.

Staff were really nice. We ordered appetizer jerk chicken nachos to share. These were a meal in themselves but we're really good.

I had island bowl with grilled mahi that I felt was slightly overcooked. Hubby had wet burrito with Cajun shrimp which he enjoyed but four shrimp for four dollars was a bit steep.

The food was good but not totally to the mark.

We got various tacos, quesadillas, and the upside down chicken pot pie. Everyone was satisfied with their selection. Nice portions.

Excellent food. My husband had the Turkey club and I had the chili salad. Awesome and we are full. Drink prices and food prices are amazing. Excellent service. You must go here after your beautiful beach walk.
